Have you ever seen snippets of the Virgin Money London Marathon on television, and wondered what it’s like to see the real thing? This is usually followed by a ‘maybe next year’ thought, a look at the crowds and contemplation of how you’d get close enough to actually see the runners, and then you go back to nursing your cup of tea and forget all about it until the next year when it pops up on your television again – maybe this time…?
We’re giving you the opportunity to finally see it in the flesh. By signing up as one of our Virgin Money London Marathon volunteers you can join us on the big day! You can either be a walker – leading our weary runners back to the post-race reception, or you can join us at one of our cheer points and see the runners as they make their way round the famous course.
All volunteers receive a free MS-UK t-shirt but this is primarily an opportunity to soak up the atmosphere at one of the world’s most prestigious marathons whilst supporting our cause. The Virgin Money London Marathon is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and every penny raised by our runners goes towards supporting our services. We rely on volunteers to make it the best day possible for our runners so we can celebrate the hours they’ve given up to achieve their fundraising and training goals, and so the day wouldn’t be possible without people like you!
